Bought a new car!

I know I haven't been on here for a while, as i've lost interest in the poor old Fairmont over the past 2 months, and I've gone and bought a new car.

a 1990 Nissan 300zx Targa Top.. 168kw of Naturally Aspirated Power.

I love it, it's such a nice car to drive, it's so comfortable and guess what! It wastes most Commodore V8's (including VL turbo) up to the VX.. hehehe And it's not an import, it was sold here, so I guess it's not that bad and I'm not going to rice her up either, just do her very nice!

and it's completely stock, apart from 2x K&N filters (these things have two filters, not one).

Anyway, I just wanna thank everyone on here, you made owning a Falcon a pleasure and I learnt heaps through the advice given.

I'm selling my Fairmont (it's in average condition but if your interested email me at david.porter@iag.com.au) but it's all for the best! :d

Thanks again guys,

Dave

Re: Bought a new car!

Congratulations Dave! I've always been a fan of that model, they're great all rounders.

The only piece of advice that I can offer is to take good care of that transmission - from memory the auto was an option costing around $7,000 when new.

Well done

Re: Bought a new car!

hey nice car.

Now you may never be able to have a car which doesn;t have an open roof again, I can tell you from experience that it'll be hard for me to go back.

Just outta curiousity, how much did it set you back?

JT: looking at my old 1990's new cars buyers guide, the transmission was a $4700 option because it had to be designed from the ground up to specifically suit the car. As for replacements, if it does go bing, transmissions from Japan would be cheap as chips.

Ah I stand corrected in that case. Hopefully I can stop stressing about the 4 speed in my KF then. :s5

Nice car! I've always wanted to get a red one and throw some 18' Zepters on it. Have fun with it, but as Yagz said, keep her straight!

Re: Bought a new car!

Yeah it's not a bad H/U that one, nice and quick reading MP3's and sounds fine.

Yeah it's a great car, goes ****ing fantastic and is so smooth and comfortable for a car that does 0-100 in 6.7seconds (factory for auto 4 seater targa top).

Well I'm happy, only thing i'm not happy about is the damn bank loan! :D

Nice buy mate, it looks great!

Dunno if other forum members would agree, esp. the 56k'ers, but I think it would be better if you put img tags around the links to have them load up in the thread instead of loading up dozens of windows.
